Re: Photo Mechanic, Darktable

You can use Photo Mechanic to cull photos. In PM there is an option to toggle raw+jpeg. With raw+jpeg selected all the raw and jpeg pairs are stacked so they appear as 1 photo. As you review the photos (1 from each stack), you select keepers and rejects. When you delete all the rejects, the raw and jpegs are deleted.

That is probably a better solution that what I was going to suggest.

Darktable can "group" Raw + JPEG files, then you can use a Lua script to delete both.

Personally I like to shoot JPEG + Raw because oftentimes the out-of-camera looks better than the Raw conversion at first, but the Raw conversion can be improved to be better.
